Oh I am tired tonight…
I have been picking olives all day in the sunshine (yes, the weather was beautiful in St Remy de Provence today) but I am aching all over – the back hurts, the legs hurt and the long hot soak in the tub is only minutes away. But I don’t care about my tiredness because we had a really successful day and picked a good quantity of olives- it looks like the harvest this year will be a bumper crop, so everyone is very excited.
The hours just evaporated as we worked our way through the trees. It is such a lovely process picking olives (especially when the weather is kind) as all thoughts of anything else disappear. As much as physical labour is exhausting I find the mental escape so relaxing.
Anyway off to soak forever in that bath…..
